Just ok for the money

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed in destiny by the sea in the past. This house had a lot of pros and cons. PROS**lots of room, nice kitchen, extra kitchen down stairs, good location to the beach access. CONS**decor not very good, 22" TV in main floor family room and nothing bigger than that in any room, several lights out in house and were never replaced when we sent the request to Compass Resorts, 2 toilets were not in service but I was able to fix them, hot water ran out very quick, only access to 1 garage not 2 as advertised, TV master bedroom positioned in a way where the bed post block you from viewing the TV. Overall I would rate this house as a 6.5 out of 10. We love the beach so the TV issues were not a deal killer for us. But if you plan on watching any TV at all, this house is not for you. 22" in the family room? Not acceptable. I would not rent this house again for the price we paid. At best, $3,000 would be tops for this house. BTW, this house is for sale. Maybe that's why it's not updated.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear this guest found Absolute Destiny had plenty of room, a nice kitchen, and an ideal location near the beach access. Since this review, the home changed ownership and has been significantly renovated as of late 2016. The new owners have gone to great lengths to ensure guests experience luxurious and comfortable accommodations. The décor is current and stylish, as shown in the new photos, and any plumbing, hot water, and lighting concerns have been resolved. The electronics and furnishings have been upgraded to suit a home of this caliber. Guests should feel confident of receiving a great value for a vacation in Destiny by the Sea.
